How far inland were you? My wife and I checked a couple of spots yesterday close to Superior. We only found five beefsteak mushrooms.

  Looks tasty.  Going in the Cedar River Area this weekend see if I can find a few.  If I had to choose my last meal, it would be brook trout and morels.

If I keep up fishing like this, my wife is going to have an intervention for me.

a friend and I decided to go have a quick look at my morel spot this afternoon haven't looked in a few days, the last few days were cold and dreary and with the fresh layer of, Dare I say it?    S##W!  this morning . needless to say expectations weren't too high but I was really surprised 45 more and a few dandy's,  just over  a pound (fresh weight) I guess the cold and  s##w! doesn't have that much effect on them? any thought's on this? it really surprised me.
Happy Hunting

Don't eat beefsteaks. Ever. They contain a chemical that can make you very sick...some people can eat them for years without effect and then one day the toxin builds up to critical mass and they are in the hurt locker. Some people get sick the very first time....they are not edible and should not be messed with.

Damian, my daughter Kris stopped in Mountain, WI, yesterday with a friend and she sent me a text with a picture of a beefsteak asking what it was.  Said they were all over the ground around the camp.  Almost word for word, I sent her the same recommendation you have written here.  Good advice.

Beefsteak mushrooms are in the genus Gyromitra sp. Some beefsteak species are edible, like G. esculenta and G. gigas. There is at least one species that grows in this area that is poisonous-G. brunnea. There is no build-up of neurotoxins that triggers a reaction, more likely a case of missidentification...including a poisonous species in the harvest among the edibles. The all look very similar except for the spore prints

I don 't eat beefsteaks either. I have heard horror story's  about people who have eaten beefsteaks all there life and when the toxin level's reach a certain point they end up blind or worse, I don't recommend eating anything if your not sure what they are, I only eat Morels, also make sure your picking morel's and not false morels, that would be bad too!

Been looking for 3 years without finding a morel.  Then we found this spot.  Got 360 this day.  675 between 2 of us, 200 the second time in, and 300 this weekend.  How does everyone cook/preserve their fungus out there?
